Structured Population and Health-services Research Education (SPHERE) Programme I

The SPHeRE Programme was established to respond to an identified need to strengthen population health and health services research (PHHSR) capacity in Ireland in order to lessen the gap between research findings, health policy and health outcomes. The HRB-funded SPHeRE Programme is driven by three core institutions (RCSI, TCD and UCC) but has collaborators in all seven universities. It delivers a national research programme across population health and health services research focusing on developing PhD-level researchers in PHHSR.
